Camden, NJ- The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is in need of forensic nurses to join our team in serving the Camden County community, announced Camden County Prosecutor Grace MacAulay.

Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is proud to have a team of 18 specialty trained forensic nurses to serve the Camden County community and the CCPO is looking to hire additional nurses to join our team.

Forensic Nurses are registered nurses (RNs) who have obtained specialized training to work with victims of crimes, collect medical evidence, and provide knowledgeable testimony that can be used in court proceedings. Forensic nursing is an interdisciplinary specialty field that draws from a variety of disciplines like nursing, forensic science, and the legal system. These nurses play an integral role in connecting the worlds of medicine and law.

Victims can come to one of the four participating hospitals in the county, Cooper University Medical Center in Camden, Virtua at Our Lady of Lourdes in Camden, Jefferson Stratford Hospital or Virtua Voorhees Hospital. All victims will receive the comprehensive care of a forensic nurse 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at those participating facilities.

“By providing forensic nursing services, the office provides the community with a vital resource to ensure patients impacted by violence and abuse receive the specialized care they deserve,” said Theresa McLaughlin, Coordinator of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Forensic Nurse Examiner Program.  “We need additional nurses to join our team so that we can continue to provide this specialized care,” said McLaughlin.

Forensic nursing is one of the fastest growing areas of nursing, and if you are a New Jersey Licensed RN with 2 years of clinical experience and are interested in becoming a forensic nurse, please email your interest to Coordinator Theresa McLaughlin at mclaughlint@ccprosecutor.org.
